A place where Colorado Rockies baseball card collectors (all 3 of us) can waste some time reading about our favorite sport. The Rockies and their cards will be the primary focus, but I like to go off on tangents as well so anything and everything baseball related may be covered here.

2014 Quarry Unlimited - #20 Chicago White Sox Part 2





My Top 5 White Sox Cards
1. Adam Eaton (blue)
2. Gordon Beckham (purple)
3. Adam Dunn (green)
5. Dayan Viciedo (green)
5. Paul Konerko (purple)

The White Sox are one of those teams that rarely has great cards mainly due to their simple black and white color scheme.  Therefore I was excited to see that they were bringing back their 1980's red, white, and blue uniforms for the 2014 season, well partially bringing them back anyway.  The irony of this whole situation is that none of my top 5 contained the throwback uniforms and I still have a pretty strong quintet.  The Adam Eaton is by far my favorite.  It is very reminiscent of one of my favorite cards of all time, the 1995 Topps Mike Devereaux.  I agree with Marcus that the Beckham is very much like Stadium Club.  The purple border even further highlights it in my mind.  The Oakland Adam Dunn card showed his celebration of his first (and only) playoff clinch, the White Sox card commemorates his one (and only) stint as a pitcher.  Just fantastic.  The green border of the Viciedo card really accentuates the infield dirt.  It really pops.  Finally we come to the ultimate card in the great career of Paul Konerko.  He was often overshadowed and has been a shell the past couple of years, but he really was a great player.

Coming tomorrow - #21 Miami Marlins

Thanx for reading.

The Dunn is definitely one of my new favorites from the Quarry Unlimited set. Same goes for the Eaton. Very Mike Devereaux-like. Great work all around!

Glad that the Konerko got included in the Top 5. Solid card, nothing flashy, just like his career. Loved watching him play.
